Manners Mall bus protester Benjamin Easton faces being resentenced on protest charges after doing only five of the 80 hours' community work he should have done.
Easton, 52, appeared in Wellington District Court yesterday saying he still had court proceedings afoot in which he challenged convictions for disorderly behaviour and endangering during a protest against buses in Manners Mall.
Judge Carrie Wainwright asked him to gather any relevant information for the next judge who is to deal with the community work resentencing.
She cancelled the original community work sentence and ordered a new probation report to look at alternatives, including electronically monitored sentences such as community detention or home detention.
Easton is due to be resentenced in six weeks.
